Hard Times/ North and South - Reading Day IV

Well, I have started reading North and South and I am not particularly impressed. It is so tedious and I am so distracted and let's face it, bored as hell. This is what happens when you have to pull apart Victorian literature and read it with a specific lit crit hat on. Then compare and contrast the two in an essay 2,000 - 3,000 words long.

It better not get all 'Bonnets and Bows' or I will have a hissy fit.

“He shrank from hearing Margaret's very name mentioned; he, while he blamed her--while he was jealous of her--while he renounced her--he loved her sorely, in spite of himself.”
Elizabeth Gaskell, North and South
